Sort by Name |
In 1982, the Baily family, having recognized the unique attributes of the Temecula Valley, planted its first vineyard with Riesling grapes. The Bailys carefully consider the dual importance of soil and climate to the terroir of its wines. The family officially began Baily Vineyard & Winery in 1986.
Set among the hills, Briar Rose Winery is Temecula’s first reservation-only winery. Visitors choose from a flight of standard or premium wines on an estate originally designed by Beldon Fields, who helped create Disneyland in the 1950s. The Disney fan also will marvel at the replica Snow White’s Cottage.
In 2005, Rick and Jennifer Buffington purchased the property upon which rests Cougar Vineyard & Winery. The winery publicly opened following the 2006 crush and featured Italian varietals, a particular favorite of the Buffingtons. The winery produces approximately 5,000 cases per year from its vineyards.
Europa Village was established in 2006 and began producing wine from the grapes of select local growers. As the vineyards mature, Europa Village is producing a number of wines under several labels. These labels are C’est La Vie, Bolero Cellars and Vienza, reflecting French, Spanish and Italian flavors.
Formerly known as Foote Print Winery, Foot Path Winery constitutes one part of a working certified organic farm. The owners, Christine & Deane Foote, note that, although their estate-grown wines are 100% certified organic, their non-estate wines comprise locally grown grapes.
